301 Gob
302 Traffic Traffic

Great band. Underrated songs aplenty: "No Time to Live," "Vagabond Virgin," "Shanghai Noodle Factory," all of Barleycorn, "Many a Mile to Freedom," "Hidden Treasure," "Evening Blue," "Walkin' in the Wind," and many others. Ridiculously under-appreciated--but there day will come again when fashions fade.

John Barleycorn Must die is amazing! One of my favorite bands of all time!

Traffic was similar to Genesis but Steve Winwood's vocals are great!

303 Mott the Hoople Mott the Hoople

Far and away #1 on this list - I have them as the SECOND greatest R(R Band of all time (to The Rolling Stones)!...those of and the few that know better have been getting off on this ICONICband (especially live) forever man...

304 Feeder

Completely underrated! A great band, great sound, has always deserved more notice.

One of my most favourite bands. They deserve much more attention and praise than what they have been getting.
Queen, ABBA, Megadeth and Black Sabbath on the other hand are NOT UNDERRATED at all and they are easily recognisable to the mass population.

305 Survivor Survivor Survivor is an American rock band formed in Chicago in 1978 by Jim Peterik. The band achieved its greatest success in the 1980s, garnering many charting singles, especially in the United States.

Poeple think this band is a one hit wonder with Eye of the Tiger, but its not. This band is brilliant, and so underrated.

306 Buffalo Springfield Buffalo Springfield Buffalo Springfield was an American-Canadian rock band, formed in Los Angeles in 1966. Their original lineup included Stephen Stills, Dewey Martin, Bruce Palmer, Richie Furay, and Neil Young.

This band had two great artists in it... Neil Young and Steven Stills. I love a lot of their songs. For What It's Worth is probably my all-time favorite song.

Grew up with their music. Very pretty songs and beautiful harmonies - ChatonNoir

Only together for about 18 months, but the members went on to greatness, including:
Stephen Stills AND Neil Young of CSNY, solo fame, etc, etc.
Richie Furay, founder of Poco.
Jim Messina of Loggins & Messina.
Buffalo Springfield is very deservedly in the RRHOF, but many people do not remember them.

This band is so cool! Ariel's rapping is badass too. They have really good lyrics. Make A Move is their biggest hit. Ariel has her own YouTube channel - REL Show. Off With Her Head, Get Well and Cynics & Critics are one of their better songs.
